Real Madrid are interested in signing Spain international Nico Williams in the January transfer window.
One of the most intriguing players chosen by Spain for the 2022 FIFA World Cup was Nico Williams. Although the forward’s season was cut short since La Roja was eliminated by Morocco in the Round of 16, his club-level contributions have not gone unnoticed.
Real Madrid is among the clubs interested in Williams, according to a report from Diario SPORT. The Athletic Club winger might potentially be on the radar for the current Spanish champions in the forthcoming January transfer window.
Williams’ interest from Real Madrid is not particularly surprising given the team’s lack of depth in the offensive unit.
Karim Benzema has had multiple injury difficulties in the current season but Eden Hazard has failed to offer the goods, often struggling with form and ailments.
Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior have performed admirably, but Real Madrid needs a suitable option in the offensive group. Nico Williams enters the fight at this point.
The winger, who is only 20, has established a reputation for his quickness and dribbling skills in the final third. With 12 goals for Athletic Club, the player has proven to be a formidable opponent for any defense in La Liga thanks to his ability to drift past opponents.
Real Madrid has been intrigued with Nico’s style of play, and it appears the Whites may soon try to recruit the Spanish whizkid, who has already earned six caps for his country.
For Real Madrid, though, acquiring Nico Williams won’t be an easy assignment. According to the source, Athletic Club is holding out for the full amount of its star player’s release clause, which is estimated to be around €50 million, and has no plans to sell him during the upcoming January transfer window.
Although there have been rumors of a possible Real Madrid acquisition of Endrick, it is unclear whether Los Blancos will fork out the cash to pursue the Spanish international in January.
